The 24-year-old has had a torrid time this season, with many people using him as a scapegoat for United’s poor form.
But despite the last 12 months, it seemed like Hodgson had maintained his faith in Cleverley’s ability, often picking him despite the wishes of many public.
Following a petition to ban Cleverley from an England call-up three months back, England fans on Twitter have been fearing the possibility of his presence in Brazil.
Luckily, the United midfielder is just on the standby list… just pray for no injuries!
If Tom Cleverley gets a call for the world cup, I deserve a call aswell

If Tom Cleverley is anywhere near the 30 man England squad at 2pm, Roy Hodgson obviously doesn’t know it’s my birthday. — Alex McCarthy (@Al_Mac8) May 12, 2014

If Cleverley somehow gets on that plane then I will never give up hope of making it myself
